Say No to the Duke: The Wildes of Lindow Castle (The Wildes of Lindow Castle #4) by Eloisa James [arc review- audio book]

Image
What is not to love about a well written, funny, and charming historical romance?
Blurb:
One little wager will determine their fate—a daring escape or falling into temptation with a rakish lord.

Lady Betsy Wilde’s first season was triumphant by any measure, and a duke has proposed—but before marriage, she longs for one last adventure.

No gentleman would agree to her scandalous plan—but Lord Jeremy Roden is no gentleman. He offers a wager. If she wins a billiards game, he’ll provide the breeches.

If he wins…she is his, for one wild night.

But what happens when Jeremy realizes that one night will never be enough? In the most important battle of his life, he’ll have to convince Betsy to say no to the duke.


The review: 5 Stars

Betsy was an easy character to relate too. She longs to be independent and be able to do and say the same things any other man can. Wearing breeches and bidding at auction houses to name a few. She is determined and brave and unwilling to settle.  At the same time she is …

Pestilence (The Four Horsemen #1) by Laura Thalassa

Image
This book had been sitting on my kindle for a while, and now that the second one was released - War - I thought it was time to stop procrastinating and read it. I am glad I did :)
Blurb: They came to earth—Pestilence, War, Famine, Death—four horsemen riding their screaming steeds, racing to the corners of the world. Four horsemen with the power to destroy all of humanity. They came to earth, and they came to end us all.

When Pestilence comes for Sara Burn’s town, one thing is certain: everyone she knows and loves is marked for death. Unless, of course, the angelic-looking horseman is stopped, which is exactly what Sara has in mind when she shoots the unholy beast off his steed.

Too bad no one told her Pestilence can’t be killed. 

Now the horseman, very much alive and very pissed off, has taken her prisoner, and he’s eager to make her suffer. Only, the longer she’s with him, the more uncertain she is about his true feelings towards her … and hers towards him. 

And now, well, Sara might still…

From an award-winning author who "writes real cowboys with heart and soul" (Carolyn Brown, New York Times bestselling author) comes an unforgettable western romance about two strangers who learn that home is where the heart is. . .

But she gets more than she bargained for when she walks into the Chestnut Creek Café looking for a job. Despite the protective wall she's built, her coworker Joseph has her imagining a life she isn't yet convinced she deserves...

Her Deadly Secrets (Wolfe Security #2) by Laura Griffin [arc review]

Image
I don't read romantic suspense often, but when I do, I always enjoy it. Her Deadly Secrets kept me entertained and curious about where the story was going next. What else could I ask for? :)
